Someone asked for a picture, so I will include one (using my phone, sorry).
And they're also overpriced!! Much more useful versions available for less than $10 each, right here on Amazon. Unfortunately, they're only "add-on" purchases and I have nothing I need to order them with.
Nikon owners, be sure and check these. I haven't had good luck with BlackRapid's goods -- see my review of the connector they market for Manfrotto plates -- and I'm beginning to wonder what all the buzz was about.
I can see how the DSLR straps can eventually get loose over time on an extended day of use. This kit will save you that one time you forget to check the anchor and carbiner that connects your camera to the strap.
This kit is worth the peace of mind.
This tether kit doesn't look like much and depending upon your needs can be enough for two bodies. The idea is that you attach the tethers where you would normally attach the shoulder strap. The one on the left (from the back) is attached to the Black Rapid sling screwed into the tripod base of the camera. If that base ever became unscrewed, the tether would save the camera. If you didn't have a tether, your camera would go to ground.
The second tether is optional and depends upon your shooting style. I tend not to install this one unless I know I'm going to need it because it gets in the way of my gripping hand and if my camera is clipped to my belt, it isn't exactly "Rapid" to draw and shoot a picture because I have to unclip it first. That said; I just used the second tether yesterday because I was climbing on rocky terrain and I didn't want the camera swinging around but that's more of an exception for me.
For what you get, I think this kit is overpriced so I taking off a star. It's very well made and does its job perfectly and as insurance it's very cost-effective.
For what it is, it works very well. If the FastenR comes unscrewed or fails, this will catch your camera before it hits the ground. Because we use the alternate fastener for the Manfrotto plates and it has additional points that might fail, it makes this accessory especially appealing to us.
Note that, due to its design, this will be of no help at all if the failure has to do with the ConnectR swivel hook breaking or coming completely open, because it also hangs from that ConnectR.
This product could be improved with a method to attach it to the strap independently of the ConnectR.
I love the product and I realize and accept that BlackRapid generally charges too much for their products to begin with, but this (with the exception of the Lockstar plastic clip) is the most overpriced item in their overpriced catalog. I love the products, but stop it with the price gouging already.
